this section. The Docket contains previous notices imposing or removing 
conditions of entry on vessels arriving from certain countries and

maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures. Accordingly, effective 
March 20, 2008 the Coast Guard will impose the following conditions of

     Ensure that each access point to the ship is guarded and 
that the guards have total visibility of the exterior (both landside 
and waterside) of the vessel while the vessel is in ports in the above 
country. Guards may be provided by the ship's crew, however, additional 
crewmembers should be placed on the ship if necessary to ensure that 
limits on maximum hours of work are not exceeded and/or minimum hours 
of rest are met, or provided by outside security forces approved by the

     Attempt to execute a Declaration of Security while in a
